Book Review: Someday You'll Laugh by Brenda Maxfield

Someday You'll Laugh by Brenda Maxfield, 2013, 99p
Clean Romance, My Rating=4 stars
Source: Free on Kindle

Stunned when her boyfriend announces they should be free to see others when he leaves for college, Brenda pastes a smile on her face and walks away. Far away. Only to find herself irresistibly drawn into the arms of another guy.

Brenda’s previous boyfriend finds out, claims he made a huge mistake, and wants her back. She will receive a marriage proposal, but from which one?

Later, on her wedding day, Brenda awakens knowing something is wrong. Will she make it through the ceremony?

This was offered as a freebie on Kindle last week and it looked really cute so I picked it up. I was looking to read a fun, quick, clean romance so I turned to this book. It's also a (mostly true) love story so that added to the appeal for me.

I really enjoyed it! Brenda made me laugh with her antics to catch and/or keep the guy, whether it was Greg or Paul. I also enjoyed her interactions with her nemesis, Sharon. She added drama to Brenda's life.

The story leads up to her wedding day which is definitely an experience to remember. I felt bad for her and kind of wondered why she didn't postpone it under the circumstances. (I realize that can be difficult to do but I think everyone would have understood.) Glad to hear that 35 years later, she can indeed laugh about it! And her husband definitely sounds like a keeper!

They have to be short in order for me to finish them quickly but it is fun to squeeze one in.
